Hello Nicolas. Great news! Thanks for working on this :)

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Yours is the very first contributed patch to be submitted so thanks very
much. It has been committed to head.

I have tested LDAP support on both Ubuntu 6.x and 7.x but will look at it
again just to be sure.

Just an FYI, the LDAP support is only useful if you plan to use iked as a
replacement for the ipsec-tools racoon daemon on a host acting as a VPN
client gateway. Support for this has come a long way but is still
considered experimental due to lack of adequate testing. If you are
compiling iked to be used with the VPN Client GUI utilities, this option
can simply be omitted.
